American Idol and More Concert Fee Comparisons

Well, this should spark some conversation. Degy Entertainment, an agency that specializes in booking acts for colleges and universities,  has a new listing where you can check out the fees  many American Idol alums and others charge to perform.

For the alums that book through the company, here is a list of their fees, grouped incrementally.

UPDATE: Sorry, I didn’t mention that Degy is a college booking agency. Of course the talent would use several booking agencies. Also, fees would vary depending on the venue.

Check out the entire list HERE.
